Different types of financing
Formas is tasked with promoting research for a sustainable society within the fields of environment, agricultural sciences and spatial planning. Projects that are funded should be of the highest scientific quality and Formas should work to support and facilitate that results from the projects are used in society.
Every year, Formas grants just over 1.8 billion Swedish kronor in funding for various projects. About one third of this funding goes to projects through so-called researcher initiated calls that we announce annually. The other two thirds of the funding goes to targeted calls that we announce both nationally and internationally as well as to co-funded research.
Here are some of our different types of financing.
